Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 26, 2010

The location is good if you are there for a conference. The Tram is only a five minute walk away and will get you into the centre. The area directly surrounding the hotel is a bit strange, a little shabby but okay, many appartment buildings and a weird maze-like shopping area. There is a convenient grocery store right beside the hotel.
The staff was friendly. The breakfast was really good; had a lot of variety including a nice selection of fresh fruit.
The rooms were big enough. Not the newest looking but kept acceptably clean. The peice of glass in the bath to keep water from spraying everywhere was too small and I couldn't wash without drenching the whole bathroom. Beds seemed new-ish and were comfortable. Carpet seemed old. Tissue wasn't replaced the entire time we were there but that's not really a big deal.

Reviewed April 6, 2006

I only spent one night in this hotel on a business trip. Was unlucky to get a room close to the elevators, but overall my stay was fine, and I found the staff to be quite helpful. The location is excellent if you're coming to Lyon / Villeurbanne to visit the university campus which is just 10 minutes walk from the hotel.
My room was a bit dated but of a decent size, with separate bathroom and toilet, but the hotel has generally good facilities, including a quite good (but traditional) restaurant, safe parking and wifi (you have to pay for it though, 10 euro for 2 hours :-( ).
Please note the hotel is being renovated until the 29th of may 2006. I got a very good rate (about 70 euro) for a "prestige" room, I think this is good value for money. I would only recommend this hotel to a person in a similar situation (on his own, needing the location and a good rate)

Very grim, shabby hotel in a fairly run down area of Lyon. Whilst close to the convention centre it was quite a way out of Lyon.

Take a look at my photos - they say it all really.

All in all, quite depressing.
